Professor X tries explaining to Wolverine that his powers are a liability.
Professor X: Wolverine. Cool Guy. Everybody’s favorite. Wolverine—favorite X-Man. Look, I’ve been going over your file and I’ve made the decision to fire you because you are worthless.
Professor X: You’re worthless and you’re fired.
Professor X: Let’s add listening to your already impressive list of skills. I’ll put it right next to Made of Metal—the substance that the guy we fight most can manipulate with this mind.
Wolverine: But I’ve got these.
Professor X: Yes, very impressive, also made of metal, but I guess handy for all those fights where you can right next to the person you need to attack.
